IKEA Oceanía is open for business!
In April 2016, Ikano Group was granted the rights to bring the IKEA concept to the many people in Mexico. Since then, our IKEA team has been working tirelessly to finally be able to open the doors to its first store on 8 April 2021.
19 million people, within a 60-min drive, to reach our offer
Centrally located, east of Mexico City, within the inner ring of the city as part of the Encuentro Oceania shopping center, IKEA Oceanía has a surface with a total of 23,000 sqm distributed in 3 levels with 3 integrated shopping centre entrances and plans to receive 5,3 million visitors during the first full year.
The store brings more than 350 direct and indirect jobs, a percentage of which will be for residents from the Venustiano Carranza neighborhood. At IKEA Oceanía, all the Mexican visitors will find a diverse offer of home solutions and a total of 5,000 products of which 250 are made in Mexico. This represents around 8 to 10% of the planned sales. Previous to this first physical store opening, IKEA started its commercial activity in Mexico in November 2020, offering products via e-commerce with home delivery.
The store includes 570 solar panels and rainwater collection and LED light systems and has obtained the LEED Gold certification, so it’s safe to say that sustainability is at the core of the business.
Since breaking ground on June 3, 2019, our IKEA team has come a long way. Some 300 co-workers were both recruited and onboarded digitally, without meeting in person for the first 6 months. Despite this, they are closer than ever and excited to welcome the many Mexicans to IKEA Oceanía!
